What am I supposed to be doing?

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I'm inherently lazy.

Now it didn't take any sort of deductive reasoning to come to this conclusion. Just 30 days of not working. I have a HUGE list of all the things that I want to do and yes, the first few weeks I was home, I was sick as a dog so those don't really count.

But the two weeks I've been coherent and drug free (okay, coherent....), I haven't been very productive. Don't get me wrong, I have accomplished the basics for a number of things that I wanted to get started with but I've come to realize that I need a schedule because if I don't have one, I do nothing or I half-assed do what I started.

Yesterday, a friend called me at 5:00 on her way home from work and asked, "So what did you do today?"

My response was, "I gotta be honest. This one got away from me."

I spent the entire day watching People's Court, Divorce Court, Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown and The Steve Harvey Show. I had no idea there were so many of these court shows! The arguments are always the same and yet, I found myself watching them for 4 hours.

So I bought myself this daily chalkboard to plan out my weeks and give them more structure.

Well, unbeknownst to me, chalkboards require "prep" before you can use them.


Needless to say, it sat for another week before I used it.

The directions said that you had to rub white chalk all over it to, sort of, break it in. They suggested taking it to a place where you could make a mess, so I took it the patio and rub rub rubbed the chalk in and then erased it.

NOW it was ready to use.

But I was tired. So I took a nap.
See?? Lazy.
I'm hopeful that the board actually will help me to focus on individual tasks knowing that tomorrow I'll be working on that so I don't have to think about it today.
Fingers crossed!
ADDENDUM: George suggests that I listen to this as well. Why didn't I think of it?? Thanks! :-)


  1. Then http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLexgOxsZu0 is for you...

  2. Really? Prep? Chalk Boards are really complicated to use.

    Notes for Saturday:
    Buy Dust Mask
    Paint Toe Nails

  3. @Grey,

    @Simply Suthern,
    I know! Isn't that crazy? Thanks, now I have something to do on Saturday. ;-)

  4. Chrissy, I actually think your idea for using a chalkboard is so much better than using one of those book organizers/planners because you can actually SEE what your plan is everyday on the wall, without having to open a book.

    LOVED the video clip!

    Have a faaaabulous weekend, girl!


  5. @Ron,
    Thanks, yes, that's what I thought to.

    Thanks, you too! Hope we dodge the rain.


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
